CGH Podcast May 2013: Side Effects and Complications of Long-Term PPI Use or Fundoplication for GERD Treatment

In the last several years, many gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients have been treated with a variety of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), while at the same time there has been a surge in surgical fundoplication to treat other GERD patients. Dr. Kuemmerle discusses the pros and cons of both approaches with authors of new articles in the May issue of CGH: Dr. David A. Johnson of Eastern Virginia Medical School, and Dr. Joel E. Richter of the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine; Plus, summaries of top stories from this month's issue of GI and Hepatology News.
